If Your fun times memories are like Rami's RANDOM FUN MEMORIES:
A barbeque pit filled with Filet Mignon for the judges.
A cooler full of shrimp cocktail.
A fake Craigslist ad for their car. Awesome.
Paul telling the judges how SCCA inspects their cars…and LeMons judges not caring.
The Mustang convertible getting painted with Chevy logos, sayings and quotes.
The leaking SAAB getting spray painted “EXXON VALDEEZ” and “KILL THE OTTERS” on the hood.
The CLEAN black Tempo that the judges made the owners bash in body panels with a sledgehammer and when that wasn’t enough, made them key it.
The smoking-CRX that worked through the test-night trying to fix their car only to have it blow and trailered away on the first lap.
All the Honda’s that blew motors…and I thought they were indestructible.
The fact that all the teams were ultra-nice and willing to help out (and that we were able to leave our personal car unlocked the entire weekend with no worries).
The social aspect of this race was a close 2nd to the actual racing.
The realization that we only go through this life once….
- this experience is one of those that we will tell stories about….
- that we’ll look back at pictures and smile….
- that THESE are the “good old days”….
- and that our choices make our lives mundane or exciting –
all of us ... chose exciting over mundane and we hope to keep it that way.
Thanks Paul for setting this up.
Thanks to all that came and joined us.
Thanks for the friendship, teamwork and memories…
now let’s get ready for 2009 LeMons.
